Death By Chocolate - Part 1




Now THIS is a homework project!

I admit that, when Jack came out of school last week asking for a chocolate bar so he could take the wrapper to school for a project, I didn't whole heartedly believe him. He got the chocolate though, and the wrapper was dutifully sent to school. He has now come home with the official Creative Homework sheet and sure enough it is entitled "Death By Chocolate"!

At last.... something I reeeeaaalllly want to know about!

Jack has plumbed for his usual crafting, research, and writing. He wants to design and make his own chocolate box (including making his own chocolates although that's not on the sheet and I might have to speak to his teacher about if he would be allowed to take them to class), and learn/write about where chocolate comes from and how it's made.

We've only chatted about it a bit this evening (it's Beavers night too) but he is very excited about making his chocolate box and wants an undead death by chocolate theme. He helped to design this header! And with Halloween being just after this project ends I couldn't think of a better theme! Ideas he's come up with so far include a graveyard box, zombie head box, brain shaped chocolates - we have the mould we used for the jelly last Halloween - and all manner of other gruesome ideas.

This is going to be fun!



Facebook has changed it’s policy for posts to Facebook pages like mine. They are only showing posts to a few likers unless I pay to boost the views. Since I don't earn money from my blog (or at least not much, not even enough to buy one posh a coffee a week) I wont be doing that. The best way to make sure you will see my blog posts is to subscribe by email up there on the right. I usually only email once a week and include an invitation to my blog hop so you can share your posts too.

Dress Shopping

Yay! Another thing of the list - two things actually because I'm certain I have the right replacement shoes for me too!

Drove down to Mum's this morning, picked her up and drove over to Jacquie's, and from there the three of us and Jac's two daughters headed over to the Trafford Centre.

It turned out to be a really easy shopping trip - and surprisingly quick too!

First off, Debenhams. The first dresses we saw for child bridesmaids looked just about perfect. Little ivory dresses with chiffon type fabric over the skirt and little flowers embroidered on the top. This means that they are the same ivory as my dress, and have some green included too which makes them ideal. And they had Caitlin & Mia's sizes too. The girls tried them on, with co-ordinating shoes, and looked brilliant! We looked at others, but none of them came close so we had them put aside and moved onto the next shop.

Monsoon had a sale on, and we were hopeful, but nothing was quite right. They had plen…
